In this episode, Dan teaches Jerry how to professionally negotiate just about anything. Jerry tells Dan how to get people to leave when it’s time for them to go home. Also in this episode: Mashing up Watership Down with A Clockwork Orange. A robot which duplicates (or dispenses) absinthe. How the stuff you own ends up owning you. How to enjoy moderation in moderation. And, we answer the age-old question: Does absinthe really make the heart grow fonder?
That’s right, future listeners, this episode was recorded waaaay back in November, 2019! Inside it contains: Cinnamon night sweats. Absinthe eggnog. Chocolate absinthe cigars. Absinthe, kittens, and anti-depressant hallucinogenics. Time-traveling Mandalorians in Elon Musk’s cyber truck. It’s Thanksgiving, dear future listeners — and we are drunk. Thank you!
IN THIS EPISODE Dan and Jerry suggest you go to Meetup.com and start a local absinthe meetup group. Also, Dan urges Jerry to “practice what you’ve been drinking” tells him about how much he hates paying retail prices. No, seriously, he hates it. Also mentioned in this episode is the brilliance that is “Robot Chicken” (can you believe it’s been going on since 2005?), and how Dan used to love frequenting hookah bars. Or course, this was back when it was only legal for him to smoke shisha. ALSO, STAY TUNED dear future listeners, as there is a BONUS EPISODE coming out this week: our 2019 Thanksgiving Special.
In this episode we touch upon recently announced Henrick’s “Absinthe Reimagined,” and while we’re not bashing it — because we haven’t actually tasted it — we’re skeptical about calling it “absinthe.” Also covered is the upcoming legalization of marijuana in Michigan and Illinois, the challenge of pronouncing absinthe in a plural sense, and Jerry touts the wonderfulness that is Clandestine absinthe. He also gives us details about the sadly defunct “Green Fairy Club” that had used to be in the Naperville / Aurora Illinois area, and discuss the 5 people (living or dead) we would like to drink absinthe with. And we’d like to pass that question off to you! Call and let us know who those people would be, at (203) 450-6375.
In this episode we talk about Le Tourment Vert, and Jerry tells the tale of getting his very first bottle of Jade Nouvelle Orleans. Dan answers the question: is there anything special about absinthe sugar cubes. Jerry then tells Dan about the connection between sugar cubes and LSD. Jerry talks about “Absinthe Stripper Magic” (Video) and the boys discuss how they can get people to put money together and buy the .awesome top level domain. You know, so that you can have a website address like “absinthe.awesome.” Last but not least, they want to know if you’ve ever been to Burning Man, and if you have, call and leave us a voice mail telling us about your experiences at (203) 450-6375.
This episode was actually recorded right before Halloween 2019, and where Jerry lives there’s already snow on the ground. He is not happy about that. But never mind the snow … the boys do a “louche off” taste test between Letherbee and Kubler to see which they think is the better of the two to recommend as a “starter absinthe” for someone who’s never tried the green fairy before. Music at the end is by Feather Drug, and if you love it as much as the boys do, you can listen to more of Feather Drug (Guillaume Thévenot) on BandCamp and SoundCloud.
Featured here for the very last time, this is a remastered version of our Halloween Special with a brand new intro recorded in 2019. True ghost stories, and contacting spirits with a Ouija Board, Dan and Jerry follow the green fairy into places they should truly never, ever go.
In this episode, recorded October 24, 2019, Dan and Jerry explore where exactly the idea of burning absinthe came from, then dive even deeper to touch upon the origins of absinthe itself. Spoiler alert: it goes back way further than either of them realized. Other things covered: A review of Letherbee Absinthe; using CBD to combat, of all things, PROCRASTINATION; and then Dan and Jerry get into a bit of a heated discussion about whether or not you should ask famous friends to sign things for you.
